Transmission fluid in the radiator means the cooler is gone. Remember if coolant is allowed to leak into the transmission then you will need a new one. That is a good excuse to go ahead and start looking for warranty prices!

8 Nissan pathfinder v6 overheated pulled over let cool down got it home let sit for hour fired up filed radiator went to leave no reverse feels like in neutral ,1,2& drive seem be fine


Engine overheated? Which also affects transmission oil temperature - trans fluid is dark and smells burnt? You have probably toasted friction surface (I think it would be a band) that applies reverse. Internal problems requiring repair. About the only thing you could do is change the fluid and filter - add some "Trans-X" as part of the replacement fluid. It may or may not work. Severe overheating of the transmission oil does usually cause internal damage to a transmission.
Let me know if this helps you at all

The radiador and transmission fluids are mixed and the van overheated. Why?


The transmission is cooled by the radiator. The transmission cooling lines go into the radiator where Inside the radiator these is a heat exchanger that has sprung a leak. This is where your fluids are mixing. Your radiator is loosing coolant into the transmission ( not a good thing ) . Your transmission fluid is now contaminated and may fail soon unless the problem is fixed quickly,however the damage has already been done. At the very least you will have to replace the radiator, flush the cooling system and flush the transmission and install a new transmission filter.

My 1997 ford explorer overheated and the transmission slipped


Tranny fluid may have been contaminated with coolant since tranny cooler lines go to radiator or condensor.
I would fix your leak on radiator, then completely drain tranny fluid and filter and replace.

Antifreeze overflow


Heater not working sounds like a blower motor or heating core. Make sure that your antifreeze is green and mix 50/50 with water, now check and sqeeze your hoses running from and to the Radiator and if its VERY hard and has a crunch sound, it's blocked up, use radiator flush and follow directions, If not than look into the Thermostat b/c if it needs repaired than it will stick and let enough fluid into the engine so that it does not overheat yet with the pressure will back up into the resevoir. My new thermostat is a 140 degree and i've never soon my temp meter get to half way after that.
